The Basement Club is unique in many ways. You won't hear the top 40s but what you will hear is music. I mean music! The Basement Club has been around since April 2, 2016.

|You can enter the Basement Club with a direct LM or the new entry that gives you the feeling you are actually going downstairs from the Retreat. (The Basement Club is an actual Basement, not like anything you have seen.)|
It’s what comes out of the speakers when we play a CD on our stereo. It’s what we hear on the radio. Music is singers singing and musicians playing. Music is a sound that we enjoy hearing. Is this a proper answer to the question “What is music?”?
|Join us or just hand out and relax as well, you will love the atmosphere here.|
If I asked “What is a car?”, you could answer by pointing at a large object moving up the street and saying “It’s one of those.” But this may not be a satisfactory answer.
A full explanation of what a car is would mention petrol, internal combustion engines, brakes, suspension, transmission and other mechanical things that make a car go. And we don’t just want to know what a car is; we also want to know what a car is for and so on.
|Dance, enjoy the music and chat as you like. You do not have to talk. Many of our visitors come here to just listen as well.|
By analogy, a good answer to the question “What is music?” will say something about the detailed mechanics of music: instruments, notes, scales, rhythm, tempo, chords, harmony, bass, and melody. This matches up with the mechanical portion of the car explanation. It’s harder to answer the “What is it for?” part of the question.
A simple answer is that music is enjoyable it makes us “feel good”.
I could expand on this a bit and say that music creates emotions, or interacts with the emotions we already feel and, sometimes, it makes us want to dance.
